Glass always has such a lovely sheen and this one has a great sapphire look. The head, which is 1-1/2" long, has swirls of yellow/gold threading through it. It also has texture, with circles "sculpted " around it.
As is common with many glass headed pins, the 5-1/8" steel shank was sunk straight into the glass, without a metal finding.This great piece of Victorian Glass is in wonderful antique condition.
Take this one home with confidence that it is authentic and in excellent antique condition. It emanates from a decades long collection and will be a great addition to a new one.
This hat pin is from Charlotte's personal collection, which was developed over three decades. She has belonged to the American Hat Pin Society for decades, to continue to learn and associate with fellow collectors. It is time for some of these treasures to move on to new houses!
